"Rolling" in Pointe Shoes


DancingForever

Recommended Posts

We are constantly told that "rolling" of the feet is very bad and can especially damage our knees. I'm getting better at not rolling in ballet slippers, but I have lots of trouble not rolling in Pointe shoes. Does anybody have tips?

 

{By "rolling", I mean when the foot rolls so the inside of the foot is pushing against the ground.}

 

{I used to be very good at not rolling before I got my Pointe shoes, and I never did it. Once I got my Pointe shoes I started rolling without realizing it, but now I almost always don't roll in ballet slippers.}

Hmmmmm....... quite honestly, I don't think I'd allow you to go en pointe if that wasn't under control completely. How old are you?

I'm sorry but I'd rather not give my age. I'm in the older section of this age group.

What brand and style of pointe shoes do you wear?

It is possible that there is not enough outsole to support you, along with perhaps not enough of a block. You might try filling out a Pointe Shoe Suggestion Form for Miss DeVor. Perhaps we just need to tweak your shoe!

What do you mean, a Suggestion Form? :ermm:

Thank you, but I don't know what many of the things on the form are asking, like what a foot "profile" is. And I have no idea how wide my feet are, or how long my toes are.

Check out the topic, pinned at the top of this forum, on submitting photos for the Pointe Shoe Moderators to look at. They can help you that way too. :)
